My Firefox wants to upgrade itself to version 79.

I'm now running version 73. Earlier this year Firefox auto-updated itself to version 74. Cors Everywhere did not work in version 74, and I need to use Cors Everywhere frequently. To get Cors Everywhere to work, I had to go back to version 73, and of course lost all my bookmarks, logins, etc.

So before allowing it to update to version 79, I'd like to know if Cors Everywhere works in version 79.

Thank you.

I've just installed Firefox 79.0.1 on Manjaro and the add-on shortcuts that normally appear to the right of the address bar are missing.

Even when selecting "Customize", there are no icons/shortcuts for my installed add-ons. I tried selecting "Restore Defaults" on the customize page but the add-on shortcuts are still missing.

I also have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the add-ons and reintalling firefox itself multiple times.


This is particularly frustrating because one of my add-ons is a password manager and without the shortcut I have to manually enter all my passwords. =(

"%gmail" in address bar vs "%gmail" in bookmarks/favourites

I like to have a lot of tabs opened (some aren't loaded, but the count of tabs goes to ~400 sometimes).

You can write "%gmail" in address/search bar and it will find the gmail tab if any is opened. But you can't do this with a simple click. That's why my "go to gmail" sequence is now Ctrl+T, %gmail, down arrow, enter. I'd suggest an option to allow for %gmail in "bookmarks bar" (I'm not sure how do you name it in English, but what I mean is the toolbar of favourites addresses or - simply - in favourites.)

What do you think? I've read about https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/tabs , but as I understand, I can't use it in a "favourite".

Hi I've been searching for a solution for this problem for quite some time and it is starting to annoy me. Every time I try and search for something instead of using google it switches to yahoo? It didn't do this beforehand. I've seen some solutions on here like doing Ctrl + Shift + a and I've done it but it brings me to a blank tab. It's like whatever it is doesn't want me to remove it. I also tried refreshing Firefox and that didn't help either.

Hi, I have 5 or 6 extensions installed, they continue to disappear from my bar and cannot access them normally (Lastpass is the one that I use the most). I'm not sure what to do. Everytime I refresh Firefox the extensions are viewable for a day or 2, then go away again.

Thanks

I AM A 68 YEAR YOUNG FEMALE, I AM DISABLED, AND PLAY SUPERCITY ON FACEBOOK, IT IS MY ONLY SOURCE OF FRIENDS AND ENTERTAINMENT. SUPERCITY GAME RECENTLY CHANGED FROM ADOBE FLASH TO HTML5 (NOT REALLY SURE WHAT THAT MEANS). BUT I CAN NO LONGER GET INTO THE GAME TO PLAY, AND THEY ONLY GIVE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CHROME BROWSER. I REFUSE TO SWITCH TO THAT BROWSER. I DON'T REALLY KNOW MUCH ABOUT COMPUTERS OR WHAT A FLASH IS OR DOES, OR HTML5 FROM A HOLE IN THE GROUND. I COULD SURE USE SOME HELP PLEASE, IN LAYMANS TERMS, AND LIKE ONE STEP AT A TIME. I AM RUNNING THE NEWEST VERSION OF MODZILLA, NOT EVEN SURE WHERE TO LOOK TO FIND THE VERSION. I RUN WINDOWS 10, PURCHASED AN HP AT COSTCO IN 2018, ITS A DESK TOP. I KNOW HOW TO GET TO INTERNET SETTINGS, AND THATS ABOUT IT. THANKS, CHARI

Hi. I don't know what it is but for whatever reason from time to time (probably caused by updates) all but one of my added wikipedia search engines (searching different languages) get deleted. Is there a way to tell Firefox not to do this? Or, when there's none, could anybody please change this? Now? I've dealt with this for years and it annoyed me to no end and today's the day I'm gonna change something about it.

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

Somehow Firefox's address bar gets worse and worse every year (I've been using Firefox since 2004). I have it set both on my desktop computer and my Microsoft Surface to just show my bookmarked pages (since I can no longer control what pages show up on the drop down menu otherwise); this used to be fine (other than not being able to bookmark a ton of pages to keep it from being cluttered), but now nothing shows up on my Surface unless I type in the address bar. If I click the bar, nothing happens. It works fine on my desktop. I've messed with different settings trying to figure it out.

I used to use an addon called Oldbar or something to have some control over my address bar like the old days, since Mozilla saw it fit to take that control away from us, but now that addon no longer works. I just want a controlled list of my frequently visited websites. Why bother having a search bar if the address bar STILL tries to do searches? If I wanted to do a search, I would use the search bar. FIX THE ADDRESS BAR.

My system was acting up so I reset FF and now I see I've lost all my custom menu options for things like Netflix, PayPal, email, etc. The screen is also WHITE...TOO BRIGHT for my eyes. I have FF set as home page as before, but I lost the light grey color I had before the reset. I have searched all over the web and cannot find simple instructions, extensions, or help on how to turn off this awful white glare in the home search page. I have also lost my bookmarks and menu icon. Can you help this 'ol fart..LOL...??! Attached is the image of my desktop with new home page...ALL that WHITE...!!!!
